Hydro Scrub provides pressure washing services to Berks, Bucks, Lehigh, Montgomery, and Northampton Counties, including the cities of Allentown, Bethlehem, and Whitehall, PA.
For 2017, Hydro Scrub is only performing work for existing customers and new customers who come to us by referral.
A word about pricing. Pressure washing is not a retail product. You do not get the same "product" from every pressure washing firm. Every power washing contractor is different. Different in terms of reliability, friendliness, helpfulness, price, quality of work, timeliness, etc. Hydro Scrub does not match other power washing contractor prices. Please do not ask if we will match a competitors price, we will simply tell you "we do not match prices".
Our pricing is based on how long it will take for us to perform your job, not how much "area" is involved. While square footage matters and figures into the overall price, it is only part of the equation. Things such as site distance from us, site access, topography, surface composition, contaminant to be removed, condition of substrate and other factors all effect the overal cost.
Finally, we typically do not have sales. We do not have spring, Easter, summer, July 4th or whatever sales. We may run a special "freebie deal" once in a while (such as a patio wash with a complete house wash), but such is the exception, not the rule for us. You may find coupon offers scattered throughout the internet.
Hydro Scrub's project minimum is $175 for any job we have to specifically travel to in order to complete that job. Our project minimum will be lower than $175 if we are in your neighborhood and are able to conduct work for you that day. There is no guarantee that we can perform the work you request that same day even if we are your neigborhood. We will try to fit you into that days schedule, but only if we area able to do so without disrupting other scheduled customers. If we must return to your project location, your project minimum will be $175.
For wood restoration projects, the project minimum for a project which involves both washing and staining is $500.
Free estimates are gladly given for projects expecting to exceed $300 AND are within a reasonable distance for the scope of your project. If your project is likely to be less than $300 OR your project is small and you are great distance away, there MAY be a fee imposed for us to conduct a site visit. If a fee is imposed, the fee will be deducted from your project's invoice if we are awarded the job. You will be informed of any such fees prior to any site visit being conducted.
Be advised that we may use the information you provide to us to research your property on county databases or with Google Earth. Such databases MAY show pictures of your property which allow us to provide an estimate without actually visiting your property.
A Proposal and an Estimate are not the same thing. A Proposal is for a fixed price... the price you see at the bottom of the page is the price you pay. An Estimate is just that...an estimate. If you receive an Estimate, the price you pay may be more or less than the price at the bottom of the page.
Hydro Scrub issues Estimates when there are highly variable consumable materials used in a project, such as for wood staining or exterior waterproofing. Proposals and Estimates are clearly marked as such. Estimates also include per unit (e.g, per gallon of stain) pricing as well. If you have any questions, contact us before authorizing your project.
Generally, Hydro Scrub is able to start non-emergency projects within one to two weeks of receiving an executed contract back from a customer. We are busiest during the months of April through July. Your project will only be scheduled after we have received a properly executed contract back from you....no exceptions! We issue Proposals and Estimates via e-mail and regular mail, but e-mail is preferred due to speed of delivery and reply. You can authorize the start of a project via an e-mail. Once an executed contract is received, your non-emergency project will be scheduled and you can plan on it being started within one to two weeks.
Wood restoration projects are often controlled by the weather. Many wood projects cannot have their finishes applied unless the wood is "dry" and this can take anywhere from 2 to 5 days after washing or the last rainfall. We will not guarantee a finish date for wood projects unless you guarantee us the weather! Even during stretches of nice weather, your wood project may not be completed if we have a backlog of wood projects. For wood projects involving cedar and redwood, we try as hard as possible to start and finish the project during the same good stretch of weather... with no rainfall between washing and staining. Sometimes this results in a delay starting your project when we know we have a backlog of other staining projects to complete.
Hydro Scrub's standard payment terms are Net 15 days from date of invoice, unless other arrangements have been made in advance. A receipt is provided for all forms of payment. If we e-mailed your Proposal/Estimate, your invoice will be e-mailed. If we mailed your Proposal/Estimate, your invoice will be delivered by US Postal Service.
Hydro Scrub offers a discount which varies in amount, but generally ranges from $30 to $50 based on the distance of your project from our location, if you and a neighbor (neighbor being defined as being within one driving mile of each other’s property), both agree to have work completed on the same day. The scope of each of your projects has to be such that we can initiate both projects on the same day. We do this simply because it lessens our travel time. This is a great option for those that work closely with their friends and neighbors. Ask your neighbors if they could use a quote for a project... it will be cheaper for each of you.
Once you are a Hydro Scrub customer (and you do not have any outstanding balances with us), we will send you a $25 check for each and every referral you send to us that becomes a Hydro Scrub customer. Your referral must retain us for any size project and also pay their invoice. There is no limit as to the number of referrals you may send us. We will always send you a check for $25 for each referral so make sure we have your current mailing address.
The only stipulation to receive the $25 check is that your referral must reference YOUR name during their INITIAL CONTACT with us (whether that be by phone, e-mail or in-person).
Additionally, if we are performing a job for you with our truck at your property and a neighbor walks up asks us to take a look at a job for them... and then contracts with us for that work....you do not get a $25 referral check. When prospective customers contact us, we always ask "how did you get Hydro Scrub's name?" This is when they are to provide YOUR name.
Alternately, starting in 2014, we are now offering a $30 Gift Card for some of the various eateries throughout the Lehigh Valley. If you know you are entitled to a referral and would prefer the Gift Card, please let us know.
